Volkl V-Werks RTM 84 (2013)
If brands like Mercedes and Specialized can create a premium product series for a higher price, so can a ski brand. The V-Werks RTM 84 is one of two models from Volkl's Werks design group. Based on the dimensions of the successful RTM 84, this edition features reengineered guts and high-performance, featherweight materials. Testers found it smooth and forgiving, with tremendous grip and an even-keeled personality. "Pure commitment to the turn," said one.
